Can Coolsculpting be done on the inner knees?

CoolSculpting the inner knees

CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. Knees can be a challenge with any modality. CoolSculpting has a specific applicator that has been used in this area with good results.  We have had good experience with the skin snapping back.  Each individual is different.  See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate.  Moreover, would also consider seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can give advice on both CoolSculpting and Liposuction.

CoolSculpting on Inner Knee

Yes, CoolSculpting can be used for excess fat on the inner knee. As long as there is enough fat to fill an applicator hand piece most areas on the body can be treated.

In my experience with non invasive treatments I can say that the technology COOLTECH  really bring amazIng  results.

Designed to treat the fat of multiple body areas through a controlled cooling system. cooltech has different handpieces in order to adapt the device to all body areas achieving the full body contouring treatment.

Cooltech procedure works by a mechanism of action based on the principle of the vulnerability of fat cells (adipocytes) to temperature changes in that freezing adipose tissue causes a controlled cell death (apoptosis of adipocytes). This treatment allows to reduce subcutaneous fat in multiples zones of the body with the highest safety.

Coolsculpting on the inner knees?

Yes, it most certainly can be done on the inner knees. You do have to have enough "pinchable" fat to fill the various handpieces that would be employed, but if there is a reasonable volume there, you should be able to expect good results. Understand that this would not be a treatment for, nor will it have any effect on, other areas of the thighs, skin tightening or cellulite.

Yes, as long as you have enough fat in that area

The basic rule of thumb with CoolSculpting is, if you have enough fat to fill the applicator, it can be frozen and treated with CoolSculpting. 

Yes, CoolSculpting for Knees

Yes, CoolSculpting can be performed on the inner knees for excess fat. My practice has already seen wonderful results from using the CoolMini treatment applicator. (also used for treating a double chin.) CoolSculpting does not correct skin laxity or cellulite, so a proper assessment is needed to make sure CoolSculpting is truly the appropriate procedure for you.
